3 Imagination Imagine a team of experts who share your passion for what you do, who understand the relevance of your newly developed technology or of your new product, and who are ready to work with you in the protection of your ideas and in the development of opportunities aiming to increase the value of your creations. Imagine a team of experts who will help you bring the result of your hard work into any market in the world, and are ready to stand by it. Imagine imaginative people. Innovation Our team is truly motivated by the challenge of finding the best answer or solution for the promotion of the varied projects and ideas that our Clients present to us, every day. Innovation is our beat. Knowledge The best protection of Industrial and Intellectual Property requires experience and deep knowledge. Our diversified team of experts is able to offer a wide range of services and meet the specific needs of those who seek our advice. We can also rely on a team of external collaborators, both in Portugal and abroad, which allows us to act on all fields of Industrial and Intellectual Property, anywhere in the world.

4 Who we are Based in Lisbon, Portugal, with representatives in Angola, Mozambique, Macao, S. Tome & Principe and Cape Verde, and associated with all relevant IP international institutions, we can provide technical and legal assistance in any field of Industrial and Intellectual Property. Founded in 1938 by Gastão da Cunha Ferreira, it is one of the leading IP firms in Portugal. Our mission Our mission lies on providing the safest, most effective and economical solution to identify potential risks; planning for an efficient protection; Identifying the markets worth exploring; selecting the means, jurisdictions and the best suited ways for expansion; attaining and maintaining a solid protection with the competent organizations both in Portugal and abroad. In short, our mission resides on helping our Clients get the most from their creation, turning their ideas into a valuable asset. Meeting our Clients requirements, protecting and valuing their Rights, is our daily task which we diligently perform.

5 PORTUGAL EUROPEAN UNION ANGOLA AND CAPE VERDE MOZAMBIQUE AND S. TOME & PRINCIPE MACAO Where we are We are Official Industrial Property Agents, fact that allows us to act before our National Trademark and Patent Office. Headquartered in a member State and as official representatives at the OHIM (Office for the Harmonization of the Internal Market), organization responsible for the registration of Trademarks and Design in the European Union, we are able to act on behalf of all our Clients in this jurisdiction. In both these jurisdictions the protection of IP Rights is uniquely promoted by local official organisms. Having the experience, knowledge and legal support from local offices, we are able to securely intervene in these countries. These countries are members of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), allowing IP Rights to be protected through International Registration or through National Registration on local official organisms. We are able to act on behalf of our Clients on both jurisdictions. In a territory struggling with the problem of counterfeiting, legal protection of IP Rights becomes crucial. Having grown a relationship of close cooperation with local offices, we have privileged resources for intervening in this jurisdiction.

6 TRADEMARKS AND OTHER DISTINCTIVE TRADE SIGNS Our services We arrange and file National, International and Community Trademark Applications and other distinctive trade signs, such as Logos, at the corresponding national, international or supranational organisms. We devise a suitable protection plan, and monitor all the proceedings in order to maintain our Client s granted Rights according to their best interests. PATENTS DESIGNS / MODELS ANTERIORITY AND CLEARANCE SEARCHES SURVEILLANCE OF IP RIGHTS We advise our Clients on the best way to protect their inventions. We assist them on the preparation and elaboration of the required documents for the filing of either a National Patent or Utility Model application or a European Patent application, and we oversee all developments throughout the process. We promote the registration of National or Community Designs / Models before the proper offices. We oversee the grant of our Clients Rights and we then maintain those Rights to keep them active and in force. We perform searches on national, international and community databases and, based on the results obtained, we elaborate reports on the viability of the project, as well as a legal analysis on the possibility of registering the signal, which will allow our Clients to make well informed decisions on how to proceed. The information contained in our database and the collaboration with associates abroad, allow us to detect and inform our Clients, in due time and after careful analysis, of new Intellectual Property applications that may conflict with our Clients priority Rights.

7 LITIGATION DOMAIN NAMES COPYRIGHT TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER OTHER SERVICES Closely cooperating with an experienced team of Lawyers and Attorneys who are Official Industrial Property Agents, we can assure our Clients a competent protection of their IP Rights during all stages, from the administrative process at the Patent and Trademark Office, to all legal matters related with the same. We register TLD s (Top Level Domains), in several jurisdictions. In 2005 we achieved the category of Registrars before the national organization responsible for coordinating and maintaining Portuguese domain names. We represent our Clients on Copyright matters and related Rights, through the protection of their intellectual creations, such as literary, scientific and artistic work. Our services can provide an effective course of action on litigious matters, in case an attempt of copy or reproduction of protected material is detected. Technology Transfer is a strategic area for any inventor or Research and Development unit. Representing a process of commercial exploitation of the Research and Development (R&D) results, it aims to market products and services, aiming for financial return on investments and economic compensation on innovation. We are also prepared to assist our Clients on any other Industrial Property matter. Namely Certificates of Admissibility of Social Designations (RNPC), Complementary Certificates of Protection, Denominations of Origin, Rights of Obtainer of Vegetable Varieties, Geographic Indications, Cautionary Notices and Topography of semi-conductors.
